About Nitoman - A Treatment for Chorea

Nitoman contains Tetrabenazine, a monoamine-depleting agent that may be recommended to treat the involuntary muscle movements (chorea) of Huntington’s disease. These jerky tics and movements are believed to be a result of an increased activity of a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Chorea is the most common motor symptom of Huntington’s disease, and the most debilitating.

How Nitoman Works in Your Brain

When taken as directed, Nitoman will work in 2 ways to reduce chorea. The first way Nitoman works to reduce this activity is by binding to certain proteins to stop the transportation of dopamine into vesicles to be stored. The second way is by blocking dopamine’s ability to bind to the surface of the receiving nerve cell so it cannot transmit electrical signals. This reduction of brain chemicals will calm down and decrease the involuntary muscle movements that inflict those with Huntington’s disease.

There is no cure for Huntington’s disease but taking Nitoman or generic Tetrabenazine can help control movements so you are able to function better and take some control back. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

What is Huntington’s Disease?

Huntington’s disease is a genetic disorder that causes cell death in parts of your brain. During the early stages of Huntington’s disease, you may have trouble recalling information, organizing routine matters, and involuntary twitching or fidgeting of your hands or feet develops. As time goes on, the involuntary movements become more obvious which can interfere with walking or speaking. Managing your household may be difficult yet daily activities are handled okay.

The advanced stages usually requires that you have professional healthcare workers to manage your day to day activities as the involuntary movements are fewer but you experience increased rigidity. Taking Nitoman, especially during the early stages of HD, can help you keep better control of your motor symptoms.

Before You Take Nitoman

Discuss your medical history with your doctor so it can be determined if Nitoman is the right drug for your situation. List any Rx drugs, OTC medicine, herbal remedies, and dietary or vitamin supplements as combining any of these with Nitoman can alter its efficacy or cause unintended side effects. If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast-feeding, inform your doctor before taking Nitoman as there are no studies to show if your unborn or nursing baby may be harmed.

Important to Know About Nitoman

Nitoman should not be taken if you have certain medical conditions. Advise your doctor if you have liver problems, untreated depression, or thoughts of suicide. All medications should be stored out of sight and reach of children.
